For the second year in a row, Millersville University of Pennsylvania is reducing the total cost of attendance for undergraduate students. The University announced today that it will reduce the undergraduate general fee for the fall 2020 semester. MU also pledged to provide an additional $1 million for need-based financial aid to help their students and families this fall.
The Council of Trustees (COT) of Millersville voted Aug. 14, 2020 to reduce the general fee by 27% for a savings of almost $300 per student. The change in fees will result in a reduction of $1.7 million in charges to students and will be posted to their accounts in early September.
“These reductions meet two of our EPPIIC values; integrity and compassion, in keeping with the University’s strategic goal of making our quality education affordable.” said Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, president of Millersville. “We sought to reduce these fees to provide additional support in the areas we can control during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
Because most courses are online this semester and campus residence halls are operating at less than 50%, many operations on campus will have shortened hours and reduced programming. Students will continue to have full access to health services and to all of the academic support services. MU has also augmented faculty and student resources to help support the increase in online and remote course offerings.
The general fee supports a variety of ongoing undergraduate student services and activities such as student government, student organizations, health services and wellness programs and more.
